Brown rice- 2½ cups
Urad dal with skin- ½ cup
Poha (flattened rice)- ½ cup
Salt- as per taste
Water- 7-8 cups
Clean and wash brown rice, poha and urad dal separately.
Now soak them in 3 cups of water separately for 8 hours.
After 8 hours, drain the water from rice, poha and dal.
Grind the rice first by adding a cup of water. Make a very fine paste.
Now similarly grind the dal and poha and make a fine paste.
Once done, mix all the three ingredients together in a big container and again beat them together in a food processor for about 10 minutes.
Now keep the prepared mixture in a warm place for another 4 hours and allowit to ferment.
After that add salt to the fermented batter and place the prepared batter in the idli moulds.
Cover and steam the idlis for 5-7 minutes.
Once the idlis get cooked, take out the idli stand and leave for 5 minutes.
Check whether the idli is completely cooked from inside, using a knife or fork.
Once cooked, take the idlis out with the help of a knife.
Your brown rice idlis are ready to be served. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
